    About half the total was for studies of improved methods for dealing with overflows from combined sewers. Nine cities were awarded a total of slightly more than $8 mil- lion to help finance such projects as construction of large detention basins to hold combined sewer overflow prior to treatment, and for installation of automated sewer. area being protected from flooding. Detention methods include detention basins, reservoirs, and diversions to natural lakes and ponds. Barrier Methods. The goal is to confine flood flow within the channel corridor to protect the adjacent low-lying floodplain area. Barrier methods include small scale berms and mounds to.

    Sponsored by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. This collection contains papers covering a broad range of current research and practice in the field of environmental and water resources engineering with a focus on trans-boundary water management. The methods available to investigate the spatial dependence in peak flows during flood events break down into (i) empirical analyses of spatial dependence in gauged records (e.g., Villarini et al., ) or model output (e.g., Falter et al., ; Lu et al., ) or (ii) studies which attempt to fit statistical models of the dependence to Cited by: 4.

    Proceedings of World Environmental and Water Resources Congress Crossing Boundaries, held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, May , Sponsored by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. Morphometric and geotechnical basin characteristics are examined to assess their influence on the frequency and magnitude of debris flows. Frequency is assessed primarily from the dendrochronologic record. Magnitude is determined from a combination of field surveys of deposits and empirical methods, and calculations of probable magnitudes reconstructed from field evidence of peak discharge Cited by:

Evaluation of methods used for estimating selected streamflow statistics, and flood frequency and magnitude, for small basins in north coastal California (No. Cited by: When overbank flows occur, maps should be constructed of the maximum extent of the water surface using flood debris or other such indicators.

After enough hydrologic data has been collected along the stream of interest, standard methods can be used for flood frequency analysis (Bedient and Huber, ). Level 3: Hydrologic Stations and Data. For example, in South Asia only a few basins show significant correlation between ENSO and flood frequency when all floods are considered (Fig.

3a). However, if we only consider floods of 2 days or longer in the analysis (Fig. 3 b), there is a negative correlation (more floods in El Niño years and/or fewer floods in La Niña years) in the Cited by: Full text of "Flood flow frequency for ungaged watersheds: a literature evaluation" See other formats.

Flood Frequency Estimation [25] For each river basin, and each of several daily streamflow simulation time series (representing different temperature regimes and/or composites based on climatic categories), the annual maximum series (AMS, i.e., a time series of the maximum daily flow in each water year) was extracted.

Briefly tracing the history of hydrologic modeling, this paper discusses the progress that has been achieved in hydrologic modeling since the advent of computer and what the future may have in store for hydrologic modeling. Hydrologic progress can be described through the developments in data collection and processing, concepts and theories, integration with allied sciences, computational and Cited by: 7.

More recently, these methods are being used in combination with finite element methods (FEM) in order to calculate flexible propeller fluid–structure interaction (FSI) response. The main advantage of using BEM for flexible propeller FSI calculations is the relatively low computational demand in comparison with higher fidelity methods.
